So thanks to Groupon I have a bunch of deals for Chattanooga, TN and I want to do a girls weekend with a friend there. So far I have 2 nights at a cute hotel, 2 tickets to the Duck Tours and 2 tickets to rent scooters. I also have a few restaurants groupons.
What else do you recommend there? We will be driving from ATL, so up I75. I know I want to stop at Rock City because I've never been.
I'm sure we'll go to the aquarium and maybe do a half day spa thing, but what else? Anything off the beaten trail?

So I got up this morning, showered, got all ready etc then Brews & Bow ties ( I need to think of a blog name for him, not a fan of STL) went and had Varsity! Yum! I love their food, so bad for you though! As we drove down town we saw a lot of freaks out dressed like anime people and I told B&B that if one touched me I would freak out lol!
We just drove around downtown randomly and I showed B&B all the stuff I could think of, the capitol building & the old catholic church. It was fun, & we could safely laugh at the freaks from the car. lol.
We even went to Zesto's and had ice-cream which was supper yummy.
B&B tried to make my iphone synce with my iMac but alas, no such luck. Im going to call the apple care team tomorrow and be like "help?"
Tonight I went back to my high school for 30 years of Sparkle, celebrating 30 years of Bonnie Spark. I saw the super fab Hot Macado - staring our very own Father Dan!
The afterwords we had a really nice reception in the cafeteria for Bonnie. I got up and spoke about how amazing she is and how she changed my life forever! This women will sing at my wedding, and at my children's baptisms. She is a 2nd mom to me and a grandma and I love her & everything she stands for - hard work, commitment, determination, passion, theater craft and sparkness!
This women had a huge impact on who I am as a person today & I cant thank her enough! "I love you but no!" is a phrase that I don't use as often as I could but I will use it more now :)
Do you have someone special and amazing in your life?

So this morning on the way to work from church, I was listening to a local radio station. And they were talking about what they gave up for Lent. One gave up sex & one caffeine. Of course, being in a holy state of mind, I was thinking about the #1 thing that comes between me and God 99.9% of the time. And I realised during mass that it's guys. Guys take up way to much of my time & energy. And so I decided to give them up. So I called the radio station and for a glorious 2 minutes I was on air, live for all of Atlanta to hear. And I told them I was giving up dating. Of course, they took it one step further and said I shouldn't take to any guys at all for 40 days & 40 nights, unless I really had to (work, my dad, drive through guy).
So they took down my phone number and in 40 days they're gonna call me back and ask how my 40 days went. I'm not so keen on the "don't talk to guys for 40 days - that seems a little extreme, but I'm not going on a date for the next 40 days. Thats my plan.
So what did you give up for lent?

So Im not sure that my readers know this, but I am a major MUSICAL THEATER NERD!
So today LR & went to a local theater here in ATL and saw my favorite musical of all time! Honk! Its the story of the ugly duckling! I got the CD years ago and I have loved it ever since. But I never actually saw it, so when Groupon had tickets for sale for $19 I grabbed 2.
This is my favorite song from the show:
If you or your friend or your children have ever felt out of place or weird or unloved, go out & grab this CD! It will make you feel 100% better!

I just want to send out a big THANK YOU to all my wonderful readers. I was having a really ruff time of it last night, and you all really made me feel better! I don't think you'll even know how much a kind word does for me, or for anyone. But harsh words hurt, more then most people imagine.
I got a very disappointing DM last night from someone I thought was a friend. She said that she, and many other readers were sick of my complaining.
It hurt me really really badly. I want you all to know that I try not to use my blog or twitter just to complain, but I often turn here when Im having a rough time of it. I dont have too many IRL friends, and the ones I do I dont often feel close to, so for me, the blogging community is where I feel safe enough to spill the guts.
I realise that I probably blog or tweet about unhappy things more then most, but that's the nature of the beast that is depression. I am seeing a shrink 1x a week, but that doesn't cure you. Nor does medicine or just ignoring it.
I know being friends with someone who suffers from depression is hard, and I dont expect anyone to even want to stick by me. I know I push people away when Im in the dark place. But all I ask is that you dont follow me or read my blog if you dont like it or what I say. Please please please dont leave hurtful comments - it doesnt help anyone.
On a better note I am planning a day in Newnan with MrsM. She & her hubby just moved into a new place so I am going to help unpack... yay!

right now that line is just swarming around my head. Im sitting in my room, alone, eating leftover chinese food while my family is out having a nice dinner.
I, of course, had a break down in the restaurant, in front of them. I mean like full out, cry at the table break down. Of course, they pretended not to notice & just kept on talking. I dont know if it would have helped if they had acknowledged me & my state of mind, but a hug and a "hang in there" would have been great.
I decided to come home. I just couldn't be there anymore. I hate having people stare at me. I feel like people do that a lot, stare at me. But not like the "wow shes pretty stare" its more of a "Im reading her soul and I can see how sad she is & I pity her" stare.
Im sure they're not, but thats how it feels. Is that crazy?
Ive had a tuff week. Not tuff like fighting for my life, or begging for food. But tuff for me. I went to a Life Teen church meeting on tue, and I felt very out of place. Im trying to make friends with the other core member volunteers, but they dont seem too interested. I gave them my phone number, but I didnt feel comfortable enough to ask for theres. Maybe next week.
Just got a voice mail asking if I had gone crazy...
Ya that didnt help.... God, maybe I am crazy. I dont hear voices, but on an awesome day, I feel sadder then ever. I took a half day today, got my hair done and saw the chiropractor. I planned to go to a CIA stock the pond party but I didnt want to go alone and I was too afraid I wouldn't meet a soul. So I opted for dinner with my family.
If you follow me on twitter you know how well that worked out... #EpicFail
I know this post makes no sense... & I also know that concerned blogger is going to leave a really nasty comment to make sure I know how much she hates me & my blog.
My ex boyfriend sent me a facebook message last night. I got a 50 survey at work today. These are little stupid things that dont affect normal people. & my familys home. I can hear them, chatting & laughing. Why cant I be like that? Why cant I be happy?
I've been working so hard to keep busy, to keep my pain at bay & yet it still comes back, stronger then ever. I wish I understood why. I wish I could turn it off.
Im going to call this number 1 800 273 8255, maybe it'll help if I call someone...
